cavuto and romney left it at a tippy statement, i was disappointing to hear that rick santorum would regard have president obama as president than a republican. to election is more important than any one person. it is about the future of america. any of the republicans running would be better than president obama and his record of failure. romney spokesman was more blunt. saying and i quote, "senator santorum is not only embarrassing himself with ill-advised comments but damaging the conservative movement." now it is time, senator rick santorum is here to respond finally on the phone. senator, good to have you. a lot of folks say you committed political suicide. >>guest: this is laughable. i'm out here sacrificing my time and energy and my family committing mile and traveling around this country saying the highest priority of the country is to defeat president obama and what i was saying there is, if we don't have a choice, the american public may decide to keep president obama. that is all i said and i have said it in every speech and this is the hat trick of all time. i have said r
the etch-a-sketch label is likely to stick to mitt romney. it confirms what most people on the left and right think about him. here is the say. it sums up romney's history in one image. when he needs to win office, he resets the slate, and does whatever is politicly expedient. that is from a website that will support romney in the fall. why does it seem when romney wins a primary, he steps on it with an embarrassing revelation of who he is. he might be able to survive them in march, but not in october. and the case of trayvon martin has raised awareness of the stand your ground laws. the law was signed by jeb bush himself. since going into effect, the rate of justifiable homicides has tripled. >>> how do you get on the wrong side of environmentalist and the drill crowd? you say no to the keystone pipeline, and then you ask for quicker construction of part of it. >>> let me finish with the romney aide that tells us that romney's word is not his bond. we begin with romney's etch-a-sketch problem. we have an msnbc political analyst. and matt viser is new from t

that republicans see a winnable election slipping away from them. peggy new man told mitt romney today in her column that comes out tomorrow that it's time to get off the goofball express, as she calls it, enough of the cheesy jeans, the singing, being lightweig lightweight, act like a president. does he have it in him? is he an etch a sketch himself? also, it was two years ago today that president obama signed the major historic health care law. its unpopularity has proven to be resilient, unfortunately, so mitt romney continues the charade that obamacare and romneycare are essentially the same thing. >>> we want to introduce you to some of the real madmen who brought presidential politics back in 1974. we begin with president obama weighing in on the trayvon martin shooting. michelle bernard san msnbc political analyst. let's listen to the president. here's what we know. let's start with the facts as we know them. please correct me. we're going to argue some of these facts. as we know them, the official police statement reports of the shooting of trayvon martin. they observe zimmerman with

night, at the much to the show, we did a report on the mitt romney campaign that seems to have jangled some nerves. this was the splash page for the "huffington post." i don't know exactly what the f stands for but it's not good. i knew we would strike a nerve or two with that report because it is a sensitive subject. it is hard to talk about but i think it's important. there is something different about mitt romney as a presidential candidate as compared to every other modern major party presidential candidate, there's a certain amount of lying and stretching the truth and spinning history everybody expects if not tolerates at all levels of politics and on both sides of the aisle. there is something different about the romney campaign. this is an assertion by me and happy to see it challenged. there is something unique about the campaign and that is the frequency with which the candidate himself has been lying during the campaign. his willingness to lie about small stuff that doesn't seem to have political benefit to him, lying for the sake of lying but the campaign's lack of remorse
mitt romney, who is also, of course, running for defunding planned parenthood as well of course is repealing the reform act, he writes an editorial which calls health care reform an unfolding disaster for the american economy. is he complicit in this war? >> he is one of the warriors on the war on women. he calls for the overturning of rowe versus wade, he wants to defund planned parenthood in this country. he is the one that so clearly to us will be the contrast between president obama who is pro choice, and a guy who doesn't tear about women's health. >> women are now overwhelmingly favors obama over romney. he leads 55 to 38%. >> we don't take anything for granted, though. it's a lot of months until the election. we just finished polling of what we call the obama defectors. who are over 50, and maybe disappointed over all, and those women are going to make the difference in this election. we know that that particular group of women will be moved on the issue of protecting abortion care in this country. so we'll be talking to them and drawing the contrast.
of the nominees. i want to see who the republican is, presumably it will be romney. i'm not very happy with romney. frankly, i'm not happy with president obama. i think his policy in afghanistan is dead wrong. i said so in the senate. i opposed his 30,000 additional troops in the senate i think it was a colossal mistake to extend the tax breaks to the 1%. you have this big battle 99% versus 1%. they were going to expire the end of 2010. they should not have been extended. i think there are a lot of issues now on economic growth. but i do understand that i have to make a selection between the alternatives. i ran for the republican nomination. it was a well-kept secret, the nomination back in 1996. i had no admissions -- >> you were quoted that santorum is not up to being president, not mitt romney either. >> no, i didn't say mitt romney wasn't. i said not sure. >> you're right. >> that's a big difference in what i said about romney and santorum. >> then why the difference? explain the difference? >> well, the difference is i know rick santorum very well. i worked for him 12 years in the senate. i h

candidates takes place saturday in louisiana's presidential primary. after mitt romney's strong showing in illinois on tuesday, rick santorum and newt gingrich are again relying on southern voters to try to slow the front-runner's momentum. santorum spent parts of yesterday hammering romney over a comment by one of his senior aides, who indicated romney's positions could be shaken up in a race like an etch a sketch when it comes to the general election. speaking to supporters in texas today, santorum doubled down in his attacks against romney. suggesting republicans might be better off with president obama. >> you one by giving people a choice. you win by giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone who is just going to be a little different than the person in there. if they're going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have, instead of taking a risk of what may be the etch a sketch candidate for the future. >> in a statement, romney responded, quote, i was disappointed to hear that rick santorum would rather have barack ob
